Robert James Barnes (25 March 1911 in Armagh – 12 March 1987 in Belfast) was an Irish cricketer and Rugby Union player.

He made his debut for Ireland against the MCC in August 1928 and went on to represent his country on 14 occasions, his last coming in July 1949 against Yorkshire. Eight of those games had first-class status.

He played just once for the Ireland national rugby union team, against Wales in the 1933 Home Nations Championship, scoring one try.
